Aztlan Mexican Grill, a celebrated destination for Mexican food, has announced it will be closing permanently in the coming months.

The exact date of closure is yet to be determined, but owner Edgar Castro posted on Facebook that it will be in June.

The restaurant, which sits in an alleyway on Church Street since its opening in 2015, garnered both regional and national acclaim.

In a letter addressed to patrons, Castro cited multiple challenges as the reasons behind the decision to close, including the steep increase in operating costs such as ingredients, electricity, gas, insurance, and gasoline. The letter also pointed to the competitive restaurant landscape in Lambertville, a shortage of workers, and the lasting impacts of COVID-19 on the industry.

Despite the forthcoming closure, Castro assures customers that Aztlan Mexican Grill will continue to serve high-quality Mexican and Tex-Mex cuisine until its last day of operation.

The owner expressed gratitude to the restaurant’s loyal customers and friends who have supported the establishment over the years.

The announcement comes with a note about the upcoming Cinco de Mayo celebration, which will be marked differently this year due to staffing constraints.

“Anyway, there are many things I would like to say but I cannot say enough words,” the owner wrote.
